2. Carrie Underwood ($5 Million, Tie)

Arguably "Idol’s" most successful alum, Underwood released her new album "Blown Away" toward the end of our scoring period, but generated enough sales to claim her share of the second spot on the list. The record went on to sell 1.2 million copies (just shy of the total for Justin Bieber’s "Believe"). With a nightly concert gross in excess of $400,000, she’ll likely soar even higher on the strength of a tour set to run through at least early summer.
